The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitrious Jazz Alley presents for one night only the Sixth Annual Sister City Female Jazz Vocalist Audition. Doors open at 5:30pm, auditions start at 6:30pm and the evening will end around 9:30pm.

The 6th Annual Sister City Female Vocalist Jazz Audition at Jazz Alley is right around the corner so mark your calendars! The Seattle Kobe Sister City Association (SKSCA) is pleased to announce its sixth Seattle-Kobe Female Jazz Vocalist Audition. SKSCA will select one high school and one adult female jazz vocalist from the greater Seattle area to Kobe, Japan to perform at the Kobe Jazz Queen Vocalist Contest on a weekend on May (date to be announced in early January).

Every fall for the last ten years, the winner of the Kobe Jazz Queen Contest has flown to Seattle to debut in the US at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley. Last year SKSCA sent local jazz vocalist Greta Matassa and high school vocalist Katherine Stuber to Kobe for the May 2010 Kobe Jazz Queen Contest. This year, the SKSCA is proud to host its sixth jazz vocalist audition as a reciprocal exchange to send two Seattle female jazz vocalists to Japan.



Finalists will be selected by late February, and they will perform at a live audition at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley on Monday, March 22, 2010, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. (Doors open at 5:30 pm.) Family, friends, and community members are encouraged to come and support the finalists. The suggested donation will be $5.00/students and $10.00/adults with proceeds supporting this and future Seattle-Kobe Jazz competitions. Finalists will be announced the last week of February.

For interested singers, please go to the SKSCA website for further information and an application form:

Sponsors for this event include: Dimitriou's Jazz Alley, Kobe Trade Information Office, Sankei Travel, Seattle-Kobe Sister City Association, and Shinkaichi Music Street.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
